Beacon Hill spring migrants part one.

After finishing my student placement in Coalville for the day, I checked out Beacon Hill to see if there were any spring migrants about.
Checking out the lower fields opposite the car park, the only notable bird was a superb looking male Wheatear feeding on piles of brown cattle shite.
Over the next few weeks I will try and check this site out on a regular basis, and see if it produces the same number of spring migrants like Ring Ouzel and Warblers like it did last year.
The only other sighting I had on Beacon Hill was strangely two Llamas feeding in the sheep field next to the Wheatear!
